Welcome to Trinity Lutheran in Bradenton, FL!

     We are so glad you're here. Take a look around, join us for one of our events, get connected with one of our partner ministries, or come to worship - online or in person! All are welcome!
     We are currently in the season of "Ordinary Time" in the church, but there's nothing ordinary about the work of God in our lives. The Holy Spirit is alive and well, and Christ's love is ever present. God's grace is an extraordinary gift to us all, in every season!       

Outdoor Worship:
Join us Sundays at 9am for outdoor worship in the Memorial Garden area. You may participate in parked cars or, if you bring a lawn chair, spaced physically distanced in the grass. If the lawn area is already full, please stay in your car and tune into our FM station on your radio. Aside from staying home and watching worship online, this remains the safest worship opportunity we offer!

Indoor Worship:
If you are fully vaccinated, you may enter for worship without a mask or face covering, if you wish. Trinity staff will continue to wear masks appropriately and invite everyone to do so. Seating will remain physically distanced. 

  • Contemporary worship, Saturdays at 5:30pm.   
  • Traditional worship, Sundays at 11am.     

Conversations before and following worship are to take place outside the building. Thank you for continuing to care for the safety of others and yourself during these times.


Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther shared some still applicable advice when he and his people were dealing with a critical health crisis: "I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine and take it. I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance inflict and pollute others and so cause their death as a result of my negligence."
